SJ, the Swedish railway monopoly said it suffered from the effects of a
cyber-attack yesterday and up until today it is still hard for
customers to book tickets.
"I can not answer to the question as to what the type of attack is,
or who has been exposed it, says Elina Ili-Torvi, from the SJ's
press service to radio Sweden.
Therefore, it is impossible to pick up tickets in stores, on the
internet or mobile site, and it is not possible to book some tickets at
all, reports radio Sweden
Those who have already booked tickets are welcome on board as usual and tickets can also be bought on board the trains.
"We have no prediction as to when the problem will be resolved, but we
are working intensively and want to inform our customers," said Elina
In addition, Kavlinge Municipality and Region Skåne commune was
reported to have been subjected to what is being described as a cyber
attack in which on Tuesday the rail company, Skånetrafiken suffered a
collapse of its system due to the network being overloaded. That means
the site received lots of traffic within a very short time and
Report did not give any advice to potential travellers but we tested the site by 9:50 am it was down.
